On the 26th of April Airlift AS has been awarded from the Norwegian Civil Aviation Authority of both Continuing Airworthiness and Maintenance Organisation Approvals on Leonardo AW169 helicopter in accordance with EU 1321/2014 (Annex I EASA Part-M and Annex II EASA Part-145).
Airlift, first Norwegian organisation to add the AW169 to its approvals, is willing to offer technical AW169 services to third party operators, especially in Norway and Scandinavia where the new type have good market potentials on off shore as well governmental duties.
The milestone has been reached more than one month in advance to the delivery of three new AW169, that will be operated by Airlift from 1st of July on Maritime Pilot Services (LOS) from its bases on the airports of Bergen and Hammerfest, on a 6 years contract with the Norwegian Coastal Agency (Kystverket) as well as made available for ad-hoc charters.
Also Airlift’s Design Organisation (DOA), that has previously worked on the AW139, is near to completion of its first modification on the AW169 for a third party customer.
